Do You See Them Yet?

Google Blog Search Beats Technorati 3-0!

Being an inveterate blogger, each time I post a message in any of my blogs, and I have quite a few, invariably in an hour or two, I check with both Technorati and Google Blog Search (GBS) to see which one catches my new blogpost. What’s the use blogging if nobody finds me? My past experience is that sometimes Technorati gets it first, not GBS; at other times, GBS gets it first, not Technorati.

My shot is that of a busy street corner right next to a Mercury Drugstore and right next to a police station. Do you see the two motorcycles cutting across that narrow pedestrian lane? They have been there for at least 2 days, and they are about 3 meters away from the police station. What’s the matter: The policemen can’t see?

Let’s see if the blog search engines can see better. I’m going to compare those right now using precise texts in blogs here on The BlogFather.

Search for the title of a blog I posted 02 April:
Search includes double quotes: “instinct & consciousness”
GBS got it; Technorati did not!

Search for the title of a blog I posted 03 April:
Search includes double quotes: “some other blogfathers”
GBS got it; Technorati did not!

Search for the title of a blog I posted 04 April:
Search includes double quotes: “the bloghead”
GBS got it; Technorati got many a “bloghead” page but did not get mine!

What can I say? GBS is better, better, better!
In the search for blogs, Technorati is nowhere to be found.
I tried it after the two; Yahoo Search doesn’t look good either.
